WHO WE ARE
The Paw Runner is born out of a passion for running, an even bigger love for dogs and a compassion for the wellbeing of dogs and humans alike.
Our Mission is to get humans and our dogs, fit, healthy and happy!
With obesity and mental health issues on the rise in both humans and dogs, we are creating a movement to prevent this from happening and to positively change your lifestyle for the better!!
It is well documented that there are strong links between regular physical activity and positive mental health as it keeps you stimulated, alert, reduces stress levels and equips you to positively deal with any demanding situation.
Increasing your daily and weekly exercise habits,
whether it be walking or running can make a real difference to both you and your dogs life. Leading to a healthier, happy, longer and more fulfilled lifestyle.
There are also many health benefits which include weight loss, lower rates of cardiovascular disease, and a lower chance of getting Type 2 diabetes, depression and certain types of cancer.
The longer and more frequent the exercise, the better for you and your dog, as it actively promotes:
Fun – dogs love getting out for a walk, even if it’s a slow potter with lot of stops to sniff.
Keeping in shape – building and maintaining muscle tone is a great way to support joints.
Bonding – taking time out of your day to spend time with your dog increases happiness for both of you.
Weight management – extra weight can put unnecessary stress on your dog’s joints, so keeping them trim is a good idea. Older metabolisms can be slower too, so exercise is really important.
Sleep - exercise promotes a good nights sleep which makes you more alert and mentally stimulated
ABOUT THINK ACTIVE WALK
Paw Runner introduces 'Think Active Dog Walk', a weekly dog walk meet up for humans and their hounds in the Market Rasen area, encouraging everyone to get active which will have a positive impact on your physical and mental wellbeing.
It is a safe place to meet new friends, have a chin wag, socialise and have fun as you explore the stunning local countryside with your doggies, whilst putting a spring in your step and improving your all round wellness.
With the rising amount of dog thefts, it is a safe environment to come together and have beautiful walks without feeling anxious.
The weekly meet ups are completely free.
We are helping to support mental health, tackle loneliness and encourage all round positive physical and mental wellbeing in both humans and hounds, one paw at a time.
